Duas for purifying the heart and the tongue

February 17, 2016

 

The following was translated from:

http://www.binbaz.org.sa/node/9176

 

Question: What is the dua to purify the heart from resentment and jealousy and to purify the tongue from backbiting, tale-carrying, and lying?

 

Answer (Shaikh Bin Baz): The male or female Muslim makes dua for everything that benefits him with regards to that. So he says (for example):

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ خُلُقٍ لا يُرْضِيْكَ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every characteristic that is not pleasing to You.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنَ الغِلِّ والحِقْدِ والحَسَدِ والكِبْرِ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from hatred, resentment, jealousy, and arrogance.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ أَذَى ، وَمِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every evil, from every harm, and from every disease.”

 

All of these are good things to say. So when the male or female Muslim makes dua with the likes of these duas, then that is good. He can use general words (like):

(Translator’s Note: Shaikh Ibn Baz is mostly giving examples of things people can say using general wordings (i.e. not a specifically worded dua from the Quran or Sunnah). He also mentions two specifically worded duas from the authentic Sunnah whose references can be found in the footnotes.)

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ

“O Allaah purify my heart from every evil.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ مَا يُغْضِبُكَ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from everything which angers You.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ غِلٍّ وَحِقْدٍ وَحَسَدٍ، وَكِبْرٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from all hatred, resentment, jealousy, and arrogance.”

 

And what is similar to that (from expressions).  And he says:

 

اللهُمَّ يَا مُقَلِّبَ القُلُوبِ ثَبِّتْ قَلْبِي عَلَى دِيْنِكَ

“O Allaah, O Turner of the hearts, keep my heart firm upon your religion”[1]

 

يَا مُصَرِّفَ القُلُوْبِ صَرِّفْ قَلْبِي عَلَى طَاعَتِكَ

And, “O Turner of the hearts, turn my heart to your obedience”[2]

 

 

اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ قَلْبِي وَعَمَلِي

“O Allaah, make my heart and my deeds upright.”

 

اللهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ قَلْبِي وَعَمَلِي

“O Allaah, make my heart and my deeds upright.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every evil.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart from every disease.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي وَجَوَارِحِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْءٍ

“O Allaah, purify my heart and my limbs from every evil.”

 

اللهُمَّ طَهِّرْ قَلْبِي وَجَوَارِحِي مِنْ كُلِّ مَا يُغْضِبُكَ

“O Allaah, purify my heart and my limbs from everything that angers You.”

 

 

All of these are good, appropriate words (to say). Jazaakumullaahu khairan.

[1] Shaikh Albaanee declared it to be saheeh in Saheeh al Adab al Mufrad (527)

[2] With the wording:

اللَّهمَّ مُصَرِّفَ القُلُوبِ صَرِّفْ قُلُوبَنا على طاعَتِكَ

Narrated by Abdullah bin ‘Amr, collected in Saheeh Muslim, Book of al-Qadr (divine decree)

Allaah’s Mercy is more vast than your sins

December 28, 2015

 

 

The following was translated from Imaam Muhammad Amaan al-Jaamee’s explanation of Shaikh Uthaymeen’s excellent book:

 

القواعد المثلى في صفات الله وأسمائه الحسنى

Exemplary Principles Concerning the Beautiful Names and Attributes of Allaah

 

This was taken from the fourth tape (or audio), starting at approximately minute 50.  It can be listened to here:

http://subulsalam.com/play.php?catsmktba=3198

 

 

The Question (summarized): The questioner says that he has transgressed against his soul numerous time and he fears for himself an evil end due to the abundance of transgressions and the lack of firmness in tawbah, so he wants to know what should he do?

 

Answer (Shaikh Muhammad Amaan al Jaamee): Firstly, we ask Allaah for yourself and for ourselves for a sincere repentance and for firmness in that repentance.  And we remind you of the statement of Allaah – He is free of all deficiencies and defects and The Most High, where He encouraged those who transgressed against themselves to repent, He called them “servants”, and He ascribed them to Himself in the statement:

 

قل يا عبادي الذين أسرفوا على أنفسهم لا تقنطوا من رحمة الله إن الله يغفر الذنوب جميعا إنه هو الغفور الرحيم

 

“Say: O My servants who have transgressed against themselves, do not give up hope of receiving Allaah’s Mercy.  Indeed Allaah forgives all sins.  Indeed He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful” (39:53)

 

And there is encouragement after this encouragement.  He didn’t say (addressing them): “O Transgressors” or “O Sinners”.  Rather, He said:

 

“Say: O My servants”

 

He addressed them – while they are transgressors – He addressed them as “servants”, ascribing them to Himself with a kind ascription that encourages the sinner to rush to repentance.

 

“O My servants who have transgressed against themselves”

 

And committed many sins.

 

“Don’t give up hope of receiving Allaah’s Mercy”

 

We say to the questioner: your enemy Shaytaan has overpowered you and made you fall into sins and evil deeds.  Now he wants to make you fall again into something much more dangerous than those sins: giving up hope for Allaah’s Mercy.  And this is much more dangerous that all of those sins that you committed.

 

Don’t give up hope.  Don’t give up hope for Allaah’s Mercy.  No matter what you have committed, not matter what evil you have done, no matter how much you have transgressed,

 

Allaah’s Mercy is more vast that your sins.

 

Repent to Allaah.  Turn to Allaah having a good intention with your Lord – He is free from all deficiencies and defects and The Most High.  Fight against your soul.

 

If you have sinned then you admit it, you leave that sin, feel regret for it and are determined not to return to it.  Seeking repentance is admitting (your sin), feeling sincere regret, and that a person has sincere determination not to return to that sin.

If after that you slip and fall (into sin again), then know that your first repentance remains valid.  It wasn’t broken or nullified or corrupted if you were sincere and truthful with Allaah that time.  So repent again.

 

It is mentioned in some of the narrations that when a servant commits a sin, then he says: O my Lord, I have sinned

 

Allaah, The Most High, says: My servant knows that he has a Lord Who forgives sins.

 

If he slips (and sins) again, and says (the same thing), then Allaah says the same thing.  (The Prophet – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam) mentioned this three times.[1]

 

Allaah – He is free from all deficiencies and defects and The Most High – spreads His two hands at night to accept the repentance of the one who does evil by day, and (He also does so) during the day to accept the repentance of the one who does evil by night.

 

Allaah – subhaanahu wa ta’aalaa – is tremendously pleased with the repentance of His believing servant – the likes of this pleasure has no comparison.  The Messenger of Allaah – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – affirmed that when he gave the example of the owner of the she-camel who was traveling with his she-camel in the earth[2].  So (he stopped to rest and) sleep overcame him.  He slept under a tree.  His camel left and upon it was his food and drink.  He woke up and searched for it but didn’t find it, so he accepted that he was going to die.  He returned to sleep and to die under that tree.  Sleep overcame him and when he woke up there was his she-camel standing at his head with his food and drink.

 

So he turned to it and said due to the severity of his happiness: O Allaah, I am your Lord and you are my servant (and he meant: You are my Lord and I am Your servant).  The Prophet (sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam) said that he made that mistake due to the severity of his happiness.

 

The Messenger – sallallaahu alayhe wa sallam – said: “Allaah is more pleased with the repentance of His servant when he turns penitently towards Him than one of you would be on finding the lost camel.”[3]

 

What do you want, O you who has transgressed against your soul, and how numerous are those who transgress against their souls!  What more could you want than this encouragement?  Return to your Lord and your Lord will be pleased with you.  Because you are a runaway slave, return to your Master and Guardian, so that He will accept you.  Receive glad tidings of good.  We ask Allaah for ourselves and for yourself for a sincere repentance and for firmness.

[1] For example the hadeeth in Saheeh Bukhari, Book of Tawheed, narrated by Abu Hurairah:

 

I heard the Prophet saying, “If somebody commits a sin and then says, ‘O my Lord! I have sinned, please forgive me!’ and his Lord says, ‘My slave has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for it, I therefore have forgiven my slave (his sins).’ Then he remains without committing any sin for a while and then again commits another sin and says, ‘O my Lord, I have committed another sin, please forgive me,’ and Allah says, ‘My slave has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for it, I therefore have forgiven my slave (his sin). Then he remains without Committing any another sin for a while and then commits another sin (for the third time) and says, ‘O my Lord, I have committed another sin, please forgive me,’ and Allah says, ‘My slave has known that he has a Lord who forgives sins and punishes for it I therefore have forgiven My slave (his sin), he can do whatever he likes.” Translation of the hadeeth from: http://spubs.com/sps/sbk/

Forming the Doer of the action (فاعِل ) for 3 letter root, bare verbs

May 2, 2010

For thulaathee (3 letter root ) mujarrad (bare) verbs, the doer of the action (and the doer may be a person OR a thing) is formed upon the pattern :

فَاعِلٌ

Examples:

حَفِظَ to memorize

حَافِظٌ one who memorizes (just add ة to make it feminine: حَافِظَةٌ)

فَهِمَ to understand

فَاهِمٌ one who understands (just add oon to make it m.pl: فَاهِمُوْنَ)

نَطَقَ to speak

نَاطِقٌ one who speaks (just add aat to make it f.pl.: نَاطِقَاتٌ )

The doer may also be formed on the mubaalaghah patterns. Examples:

فَقِهَ to understand

فَقِيْهٌ one with deep understanding

and likewise خَطِيْبٌ -lecturer – is from خَطَبَ

Another common mabalaghah pattern is فَعَّالٌ . Examples:

خَبَّازٌ Baker from خبز – to bake

حَلَّاقٌ Barber from حلق – to shave

غَسَّالَةٌ Washing Machine (Washer) from – غسل to wash

(for more professions:

https://sughayyirah.wordpress.com/category/arabic/vocabulary-general/professions/ )

 

Do not confuse this pattern with فُعَّالٌ which is a plural form (and has dammah over the first letter). Examples:

رُكَّاب Passengers

حُكَّامٌ Judges

كُفَّارٌ Disbelievers

Doers for double letter verbs (3 letter root, bare) are formed like this:

حَجَّ to make Hajj

حَاجٌّ pilgrim (person who makes Hajj)

Doers for weak middle letter verbs are formed like this:

سَاقَ to drive

سَائِقٌ Driver

Doers for weak last letter verbs are formed like this:

رَقَى to recite ruqya (not to be confused with رَقِيَ to climb)

رَاقٍ (qaf has two kasrahs) One who recites ruqya (ruqya is reciting words in the hopes of curing a sick person.  There are two types of ruqya: 1.Legislated (from Quran and authentic Sunnah) and 2.Not legislated (may involve disbelief, polytheism or other things contradictory to Islam).  An excellent book on the subject is The rules and etiquettes of Ruqya by Shaikh Saalih ibn Abdil Azeez Aali Sheikh with comments by Shaikh Ibn Baaz  and Shaikh Rabee ibn Haddee al Madkhalee, published by al-ibaanah)

As a side note, doers which are formed like this (above) take a ي as an ending in three cases:

1.when it has ال .Example: المُحَامِيْ the lawyer (مُحَامِيَةٌ female lawyer)

2.when it is mudaf هُوَ قَاضِيُ المَدِيْنَةِ He is the judge of the town

3.when it is mansoob زَارَ مُحَامٍ قَاضِياً A lawyer visited a judge

See Madinah Book 3, lesson 1
